A terrified 6-week-old puppy sat in the corner of a kennel in a rural Texas shelter waiting to die. She had no name, no identity, and no one but the shelter knew she even existed. Sadly, their only solution was to euthanize her – too many dogs, too many puppies and no one to give them a home and no one to love them.

It was on Friday evening that volunteers posted the puppy’s plight on Facebook. Her story went like this:

“A terrified puppy sits in a corner in a kennel. She has no name. No identity. No one knows she exists but those whose job it is to kill her. No mom to shelter her from this misery, no siblings to keep her company. She sits in a kennel by herself . She is too young to be this frightened . She is too young to be here it all.”

Just hours later, Rescue Dogs Rock NYC came to the puppy’s rescue. Now named Polly, she has been transported to the organization’s partner veterinarian for life saving medical treatment. Polly will never be lonely again.

    Scumbag. Owners who did this to this poor dog deserve to be in jail. To rot there. How dare you?! How could you? If you are that ignorant and uncaring you don’t deserve an animal.

    If IT wasn’t for “DOGS ROCK NEW YORK”!!! This Terrified Little Puppy would have NOW BEEN GONE! For CHRIST SAKES WHAT THE HELL is it going to take to WAKE the MORONIC STATE of TEXASS UP!!! NO even a blanket on the floor for this poor little pup!!! I think TEXAS NEEDS is worse than Mexico in the very fact so few POPULATION tries to make a difference in assisting these unfortunate animals to find caring homes, medical services, & the WORST is there is NO ACCOUNTABILITY for ANIMAL ABUSE and torture… Governor ABBOTT and HIS FIRST LADY SHOULD BE ASHAMED to be associated as the HEAD OS STATE!!!

    NO six week old puppy should be euthanized – no way, no how – AND if not for Rescue Dogs Rock NYC Polly would be dead – this organization does incredible work saving animals that would most definitely have been put down – Texas being one of the worst states in this country for animal welfare seems to be one that RDR comes through for continuously. Just glad Polly was taken and is getting proper medical attention and hopefully, a new safe and loving home ASAP.

    Thank you RDR for rescuing Polly. She deserves a chance to have a loving forever home. I wonder how she wind up in the shelter at only 6 weeks old, way too young to be away from her mom and siblings.
